"Algiers" is a romantic mystery starring Charles Boyer and Hedy Lamarr. It's a 1938 Hollywood remake of the 1937 French film "Pepe le Moko" with Jean Gabin. Pepe (Boyer) is a notorious thief who has escaped from France and hides in the Casbah of Algiers. The French officials are after him, but he is protected by the local police. Boyer and Lamarr are attractive, and in one scene Boyer sings "C'est la vie" to his neighbours. See:...

This spot slowly enlarges and is focused into shape, until, to the amazement of the audience, the face of the great emancipator is clearly...

From Wikipedia: Never Weaken is a 1921 silent comedy film starring Harold Lloyd and directed by Fred Newmeyer. It was Lloyd's last short film, running to three reels, before he moved permanently into feature-length production. It was also one of his trademark "thrill" comedies, featuring him dangling from a tall building. Lloyd and his crew honed and perfected their "thrill" filming techniques in this film, and put them to astonishing use in the 1923 classic feature Safety...
